Classic Album Sundays presents Kraftwerk "Autobahn"
Sunday, April 1, 2012 from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM (BST)
In April, Kraftwerk are going to perform eight of their classic albums in association with with the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. Unfortunately, most fans could not get their hands on tickets before it sold out. But worry not meine freunde as Classic Album Sundays is coming to the rescue!
Classic Album Sundays will present the much-requested "Autobahn" by Kraftwerk on 1 April at The Hanbury Arms in London. This is Kraftwerk's first concept album and it was completely groundbreaking when it was released in 1974. Even though the album mainly featured all electronic instrumentation and followed three very experimental albums, an edit of the title track found itself on the European and American charts. Toll.
Join us at 5 pm for a high speed and sonically enhanced journey through Kraftwerk's musical contemporaries and discover why they become such a major inluence on modern music. Please get their as early as you can.
At 7 pm the lights go down, the volume goes up and we play the album from beginning to end on vinyl on our audiophile hi-fi. The audio menu will include a Rega Apheta MC Cartridge, a Rega P9 Turntable, a Mark Levinson ML1 Preamp and Bowers & Wilkins 802 Diamond Loudspeakers. The Hanbury are kindly offering two-for-one pizzas to CAS attendees (and I can attest they taste mighty fine).
Doors close at 6:45 or when we reach full capacity and listening guidelines apply.
Come join us for the ride of a lifetime!
